Review: Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion and Whitening Mask

Saturday, April 11, 2015

The first time I stumbled on the Mario Badescu brand was on a Monthly favourites on YouTube. I did some research and found out we can get them at an affordable price from Luxola in Malaysia 

Mario Badescu Skin Care is one of the most profound skin care products in the world, which believes in old age skin care techniques. Enjoying a legacy of over 40 years as a skin care solution, the brand works on the vision of its founder Mario Badescu: simplicity is the key to healthy, clean, radiant skin.

A little heads up before buying, Mario Badescu US website does offer a free skin analysis so you know which products suits your skin type. I gotten this two product after taken that test and reading good reviews on Luxola's website.

 This is how it looks like when the "cap" is close.
This is the "cap", you just have to lift it up to dispense the liquid inside.

 I find it more convienient and I can control the amount of liquid that comes out.

Special Cucumber Lotion

What it claims:
A refreshing, disinfecting and deep cleaning astringent that is effective in drying up existing acne blemishes while preventing new eruptions. Sulfur and soothing Cucumber based, acne fighting formula that is non-drying and non-irritating.

How I feel:
I really feel that this doesn't strip or irritate my face at all. In fact, it does a great job disinfecting my acne. It's slightly astringent, but still gentle and moisturizing for my skin. There is also not a strong scent to it, and it does have a  nice cooling sensation when apply.

Whitening Mask

What it claims:
This hydrating mask will help brighten uneven skin tones and gently minimize the look of old acne scars and discolorations from the sun. Skin lightening, natural ingredients like Kojic Acid, Licorice and Mulberry make this mask gentle for all skin types. Contains no Alpha Hydroxy Acids making it safe and gentle for acne erupted or very sensitive skin.

How I feel:
It does whitens and brightens my face after 1 time usage, it does a great job at reducing my acne scars! I love the consistency and texture of the product, you need little amount to spread over your face. However, there is a strong grape/berry scent that lingers and there is a waxy residue after you wash it off. Nonetheless, this is the best whitening mask I've tried, I love the effect and I think this is great for spot treating my acne scars and pigmentation!
